A student edition of this challenging and popular tragedy with notes and commentary.
The most controversial of the Greek tragedians, Euripedes is also
the most modern in his sympathies, a dramatist who handles the complex
emotions of his characters with extraordinary depth and insight.
Wronged and discarded by her husband, Medea gradually reveals
her revenge in its increasing horror, while the audience is led to
understand the incomprehensible; a woman who murders her own children.
Since its first production (431 BC), the play has exerted an
irresistible attraction for actors and directors alike.
